Cough syrup, medication smoothies, massages and inhalers: K.I.D partakes in just about anything to feel better in the new music video for “Errors.”
The song embodies a bright, hi-fi pop sound, but woven within the colorful sound lies a dark underside: feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, depression and lethargy. K.I.D destroys the stigma around depression and brings it candidly to the surface.
The music video brilliantly depicts two opposing situations, switching from vibrant, bright colors as the duo floats in a blue pool to Kara laying on a couch and watching TV in a dark and dingy living room.
Kara gets real as she confesses that a debilitating sadness is taking over: “No I'm not doing my best, kind of fragile and depressed. I cannot even bring myself to get dressed.” But there’s a longing and desperation to feel better: “And I wish I could correct complications in my head. I’ve tried every little dose they recommend there’s an error in me.”
Originally from Ontario, Canada, the self-described "garage-pop" duo K.I.D is comprised of siblings Kara and Bobby. Their latest release was their EP K.I.D in 2015.
